Hi guys, im using a 24" 60hz 1080p TN panel monitor atm but there's a sale at a gameshop near where i stay. There's a samsung 27" 75hz 1080p VA panel monitor for sale around $130 only, thinking of picking it up but i remember i read somewhere people said 27" is for 1440p mostly and the pixel will have jaggies if you use a 27" for 1080p.

Thoughts and advice please? Thank you.

I am responding to you on a 27 inch 1080p monitor.

In my opinion, if you were to use 1440p for awhile, then come back to 1080p, you would probably notice a difference and may feel uncomfortable with 1080p.
I don't 720p often, but when i do, it really looks awful to me. Back when i was playing PS3/Xbox 360 in 720p, it looked amazing.

Yer I have a 27" 1080 144Hz monitor, as Master_Happosai said if you use 1440p for a while you might not be able to go back, 27" would be the largest I'd get at 1080p anything larger and I'd have to go up resolution.

Depends on distance. 27" 1080p is a higher pixel density than a 55" 4k

720p on consoles look way better than on pc, has nothing to do with the monitor.

I think 24 inch is the sweet spot for 1080p. 27inch the sweet spot for 1440p and 50 inch for 4k.
Outside of these sweet spots you either waste resolution or stretch the pixal density to far.

viewing distance is the sweet spot.

Assuming you're using it like a PC monitor and sitting a few feet away from it, 27 is big even for 1440p. I found 25 to be ideal, but there are so few monitors in that size.

Thank you everyone, i think i'll hold back for now and look for a 24" with ips panel and maybe a minimum 75hz refresh rate.

I would say at standard monitor viewing distances, that's probably about as big as you'd want to go/perhaps a little too big. Any larger and you get really chunky pixels.
